The NYPD needs the public’s help in finding a man who broke into five businesses in downtown Flushing since late October.
Police released on Nov. 10 an image of the suspect behind the pattern, which began on Oct. 24 with a break-in at the Szechuan House restaurant at 133-47 Roosevelt Ave.
At 11:46 p.m. that evening, authorities said, the crook entered through a front door, grabbed hold of one cash register and removed $200 from another register.
Two weeks later, police said, at 8:35 a.m. on Nov. 4, the bandit entered Transperfect Language Service at 136-21 Roosevelt Ave. and removed credit cards.
Authorities said that the burglar struck again at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 6, when he entered the rear of a business at 136-68 Roosevelt Ave. and removed drills and other items.
Finally, law enforcement sources noted, the thief hit two businesses at 136-76 Roosevelt Ave. just after 3 a.m. on the morning of Nov. 7. First, he entered the 88 Aroma Touch Spa II through a rear window, but exited it empty-handed. He then got into the side window of the Yosei Nail Salon and removed $900 in cash from the register.
All of the burglaries were reported to the 109th Precinct.
